February Parish Council News


Voters now need to show an approved form of photo ID to vote at a polling station in the Borough and Parish elections on Thursday, 4 May 2023. 

If you don’t have an accepted form of photo ID, you can apply for a free voter ID document, which is known as a Voter Authority Certificate, before 25 April. Details of how to do this can be found at www.swindon.gov.uk/voterID

Those voting by proxy will need to make sure the person going to vote on their behalf takes their own ID, and not ID for the person they are voting for. Postal voting will remain the same.

More information about the local elections and a list of acceptable ID documents can be found on Swindon Borough Council’s website.


A reminder that the next Village clean-up will be on Saturday, 25th March 2023, meeting at Jubilee Gardens at 09.30am for a couple of hours.  We will be doing the usual tidying, litter picking, cutting back overhanging shrubs alongside footpaths; in fact, anything you think will make our village look better and looked after. The Parish Council is concerned about your safety so please wear appropriate clothing, strong sturdy shoes, and protective gloves. You will be provided with a high-viz tabard and a litter picker on the day. All volunteers are most welcome to join us.

The next Parish Council meeting will be held on 1st March 2023 at 7pm in the Village Hall. Residents are welcome to attend.

Please note the section where the public can speak is to be held at 7.30 pm in the Main Hall. The remainder of the meeting will be held upstairs in the Committee Room, this being the majority of the meeting. Members of the public are welcome to attend as observers, if residents cannot negotiate the stairs, please give the Clerk 48 hours’ notice so alternative arrangements can be made.

Alternatively, if you would like to raise an issue or ask a question, please contact the Clerk, via parishclerk@liddington.org
